Many readers have told us that they enjoy going to symphonies and dance performances. Quite a few have asked us to review/recommend alternative dance events in the Boston area. For Fall 2009, we have decided to take on that task first hand.
Our first event will be one presented by World Music/CRASHarts. Since 1990, these folks have been one of Boston's premiere presenters of contemporary, emerging, and cutting-edge dance and other performance artists. Feel free to check out their 2009 Fall season here. As many of these events are one night performances, we will post our recommendations a few months ahead to give you plenty of time to make plans and purchase tickets.
Some of the folks here are students of Aikido, so the World Music event which piqued their interest most is the Shaolin Warriors scheduled for Oct 16 at the Oprheum theater. In a fully choreographed theatrical production, the Shaolin Warriors bring the skill, movement and imagery of Kung Fu to the stage. Audiences can look forward to being amazed and thrilled by watching Kung-fu disciplines such as qigong, animal imitation boxing, drunken boxing, and fighting with many different kinds of traditional weapons.
We will post a quick reminder about a week before the event and will have a write-up of the event for those who may not have had the opportunity to attend. This economy needs a serious jump start. No reason why we shouldn't do it by promoting interesting non-traditional performances :-) [Permalink] - Shaolin Warriors
